Tiffany Van Soest Becomes a Two Division Champ | Lion Fight 27 Highlights and Results


Van Soest and Pinca Take Home Titles at Lion Fight 27

The first Lion Fight of 2016 is in the books!

Lion Fight 27 featured six very great match-ups and as a result, all six main card bouts went the distance for the first time ever at Lion Fight. Capping off the 3+ hour main card were two title fights. In the first championship bout, featherweight champ Tiffany Van Soest dropped a weight class in an attempt to become the promotion’s first ever two division champ. Van Soest took on the tough Ashley Nichols in a hard fought five-round war. Van Soest’s footwork and agility ultimately sealed the win making the “Timebomb” the featherweight AND Super Bantamweight champion. The main event featured the return of France’s Fabio Pinca as he put his welterweight title on the line against England’s Charlie Peters. The long lay off for Pinca was a non-factor as he dominated Peters to retain his title.

Elsewhere on the card, veteran Kronphet won a very controversial decision over Gaston Bolanos, and Brian Del Rosario avenged a previous loss to Chris Culley in a heated grudge match.

Here are the highlights:

  • Fabio Pinca def. Charlie Peters via Unanimous Decision (49-44 49-44 49-44)
  • Tiffany Van Soest def. Ashley Nichols via Unanimous Decision (50-45 49-46 49-46)
  • Kronphet Phetrachapet def. Gaston Bolanos via Split Decision (47-48 48-47 48-47)
  • Brian Del Rosario def. Chris Culley via Unanimous Decision (48-47 49-46 49-46)
  • Anvar Boynazarov def. Coke Chunhawat via Unanimous Decision (49-46 49-46 49-46)
  • Travis Clay def. Jared Papazian via Unanimous Decision (48-46 48-46 48-46)
